First off – You’ve likely already heard the news that both Jimmy Hayes and Jeremy Morin has been reassigned to Rockford this morning. This isn’t (or at least shouldn’t be) about their level of play in their time with the big club.
It’s more likely an indication that the roster is getting awfully tight. Michael Handzus is on his way to do whatever it is Michael Handzus is capable of doing. And the better implication is that Marian Hossa and Patrick Sharp are even closer to a return. Maybe tomorrow? Time will tell.
The bigger and better news though – it’s time for yet another road watch with your favorite degenerate functional alcoholics. No, not your Uncle Roger… us.
This Saturday we’re taking over the back room of Sheffield’s once again to watch the Blackhawks take on the Predators in the afternoon match up. As we did last time, we’ll be having drink specials from one of my favorite local breweries, Two Brothers. Buckets of Outlaw (check out them spiffy colors) will be $20 and all Two Brothers pints are $4. Come raise a glass or can with us.
